An effort to legitimize the game of poker as one based on skill, has been undertaken by Charles Nesson, Harvard Law School.
The lawyer has formed the Global Poker Strategic Thinking Society “to lobby the government to ease the rules shackling playing the game of poker”.
Nesson considers poker to be an excellent educational instrument and claims that it is great “to learn and practice the skills of seeing what things look like from another person’s point of view”.
Charles Nesson thinks that poker is the game where you learn to be smart and win using your brain. He claims that poker can be used for teaching children. So, he is planning on running seminars of the art of poker for children.
